GForce introduce the Mini Break-in system for mini and micro-size brushed motors. Designed for the use with Tamiya’s Mini 4WD series of “slot cars”, the system is also usable for the brushed motors found in Kyosho’s Mini-Z or HPI’s Micro RS4 line of vehicles. The motor run-in system is housed in a sturdy case with a jog dial to adjust the output voltage and also a timer that stops the run-in process after a certain time. A non-slip foam pad and a velcro strap prevent the chassis or motor from moving around and the break-in device is powered by four AA-size batteries or an optional power supply.

After releasing the VX 540-size electric brushless motors Reds Racing now introduce a dedicated series for 1/8th scale racing. The V8 are specifically designed 1/8th off-road motors to provide exceptional power, superior smoothness and control in combination with high efficiency and a low temperature operation. Coming with a highly finned CNC-machined aluminium can for improved heat dissipation the motor is capable of both sensored and sensorless operation and available in two KV options of 1900KV and 2100KV.

Team Orion introduce the VST2 Pro 550 4.0T brushless short course motor. The motor builds on a robust aluminium case with an improved ventilation system for best possible cooling. The new design also features a convenient dual sensor port system which allows the motor to be installed in the chassis in the best possible way. The empty port can be used to easily program the ESC through the motor. The 2-pole 5100kv motor also offers adjustable timing, heavy-duty solder tabs and it comes with a rotor installation tool to make convenient rebuilding possible.

Team Orion introduce the new VST2 Sport brushless motor. Developed by Oscar Jansen the sport version of the World Championship winning VST2 Pro is of a fixed timing design, making it ideal for spec racing classes. The motor builds on a machined aluminium can, it is of a simple and reliable deign and large venting holes make for efficient cooling and low running temperatures even in high ambient temperatures. The VST2 Sport is available in 6.5T to 8.5T modified and 10.5T to 21.5T stock windings.

Coming soon from nVision, previously known especially for their range of high-performance nitro engines and LiPo batteries, are the R540 competition electric brushless motors. Designed by motor guru Oscar Jansen the new R line motors offer a machined, orange anodised aluminium can with alloy front and rear endbells. Excessive machining of the can and endbells reduce the overall weight while improving cooling efficiency at the same time. Pre-shaped heavy-duty solder tabs make for easy and reliable wiring even when using large diameter wire. The sensored motors target the serious racer who is looking for a reasonably priced competition motor with the R540 being available as 4.5T to 8.5T Modified and 10.5T to 21.5T Stock racing variant.

New from GForce comes the motor analyser, a device to check multiple parameters of car and flight brushless motors. Housed in a sturdy case with a blue backlit display, the motor analyser allows to check the motor’s KV rating, voltage and amp draw, as well as the sensors. A timing test helps to precisely adjust the timing level while a noise level test can give a hint on the motor’s ball bearing condition. The motor tester is made for the use with 7.4V to 8.4V input power sources and it comes with a set of adapter wires for the motor and power supply.
